Rock Tape

What is Rocktape?

RockTape is a type of kinesiology tape. It has many healing qualities as well as performance enhancing benefits. RockTape is often referred to as the “duct tape of the human body” because it is so versatile.
Some of the many beneficial uses include:

  • Compression or decompression of an area, depending on it’s application.
  • The promotion of blood flow or help to drain swelling.
  • Decrease pain
  • Increase the awareness of a specific area that needs attention
  • Depending on application, it can activate or deactivate a muscle group to enhance performance or decrease risk of injury.

Although RockTape is mostly commonly used amongst athletes, it has proven to be a tremendous tool utilized in the treatment of our patients.
